Basic Auto Care Many Drivers Miss

Fluids and lubricants rank among the most neglected items when it comes to basic auto care, says the non-profit Car Care Council.

Community car care events held throughout the country found that the top-three fluids most likely to be low or contaminated are windshield washer fluid in 26 percent of inspected vehicles, followed by engine oil at 23 percent and coolant at 19 percent.

Windshield washer fluid keeps dirt and debris from collecting on a vehicle's windshield, allowing the driver full visibility and making it an essential safety item. Windshield washer fluid should be checked monthly and drivers should use a fluid that is specially formulated for their climate.

Engine oil lubricates the moving parts of a vehicle's engine, helping keep the engine clean and preventing wear and overheating. Neglecting to change a vehicle's oil can lead to costly repairs, including replacement. Engine oil levels should be checked frequently and changed per the owner's manual.

Coolant absorbs heat from the engine and dissipates it through the radiator and heat exchanger. Because coolant breaks down over time, neglecting it can lead to corrosion, rust and engine overheating. Flushing and replacing coolant every six to 12 months, depending upon climate, will help prevent costly repairs.

"Checking fluids and lubricants is easy to put off, but each is critical to your vehicle running properly and safely," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "The good news is that they are easy to check and inexpensive to replace. Whether you do it yourself or visit a trusted technician, be sure to inspect your vehicle for any possible signs of trouble so you can address minor service needs before they turn into major repairs."

What People Say About Us

  • reviewicon

    Dropped off my car here today for a variety of stuff. Forgot my emissions inspection was coming up when I dropped off, called later and not only they were more than accommodating, but they rotated my tires as well without me asking because they caught that there would otherwise be an issue with the tires. Promptly completed, great quality, and most important of all--the price was EXTREMELY fair. Bill is also extremely professional and has great customer service. Definitely coming here again. Highly recommended.

    Quality work, honest, and a fair price. If you don't want to be concerned about being raked over the coals or having unnecessary work done, look no further than Gallagher's.

    I took my Mercury Mountaineer in for service. There had been a rumbling noise while accelerating. For all I knew it could have needed a new transmission but Bill Gallagher did not try and sell me a new tranny when in fact all it needed was in fact an additive added to the fluid to help with the overdrive (a known Ford/Merc. problem.) Thank you Bill for your honesty. I trust his shop implicitly. I highly recommend his shop to anyone.

    Our experience with Gallagher's service was outstanding! Bill was very professional and treated us with the utmost respect. We have found their prices to be reasonable and we are very satisfied with their work. We will be going back to Gallagher's from now on and we will recommend their services to others.

    Lucked out and found Bill's shop and now bring everything to him. Excellent mechanics, MB experts (as well as other German models and many other foreign and domestic vehicles). They now service everything from my '96 Jeep Cherokee to the MB. They actually repair things instead of rip and replace. They are always upfront about pricing and will give you an honest estimate before starting the repair.
